It’s no secret that we are huge fans of Nova Launcher. As an all-ICS home replacement, it gets better and better with each new update – something that happens quite often by the way. And when the newest update popped up on my handset last night showing that custom icons could now be added over folders, you could find me grinning for a solid 5 minutes. This may seem like such a minimal update, but to be honest, the folder icon that is used in Android 4.0 is not the prettiest thing on the planet. A round circle with a batch of apps laying all over each other? Eh, no thanks. Custom icon that I choose instead? Yes, please.

The update also includes infinite scrolling, optimizations and other bug fixes.
